Deepa Bharath NEWPORT BEACH -- A parking garage near Lido Village collapsed and was destroyed Monday evening, causing extensive structural damage to an attached office building, authorities said. The front portion of the two-story parking structure snapped off the main office building in the 2800 block of Lafayette Avenue around 5 p.m. Monday, dragging both buildings toward the West Lido Channel, said Lt. John Blauer of the Newport Beach Fire and Marine Department.

The Daily Pilot article on the proposed St. Andrew's project raised a number of issues that might lead a reasonable person to question the merits of placing a parking garage in a residential neighborhood to accommodate the expansion of an institutional structure out of proportion and character to the surrounding community ("Church parking poses expansive problem"). It was also refreshing not to have the picture of the photogenic Rev. John Huffman accompanying the article, because the issue of a general-plan amendment to facilitate a parking garage in opposition to the immediate residents should not be a referendum on the leading personalities against whom few, if any, would reasonably speak.

Deirdre Newman NEWPORT BEACH -- School district officials heard an earful of concerns Monday from nearly a dozen residents about a proposed parking garage at Newport Harbor High School that would be built and operated by the district and St. Andrew's Church. The concerns, voiced mostly by people who live in the neighborhood of both the school and church, ranged from skepticism about the need for the garage to frustration over the proposed location.

A car fire rattled residents briefly Wednesday at an apartment building in the 1800 block of Park Newport Drive. The car parked in the underground structure at the Park Newport apartment complex caught on fire about 3:20 p.m., said Newport Beach Fire Battalion Chief Bill Bennett. "It was a small fire that started in the dash area inside the car," he said. "The owner of the car and the security people had put it out even before we got there." The inside of the car, however, was pretty badly damaged, Bennett said.

Firm misses earnings goal by a penny a share A quarterly earnings report from Costa Mesa-based Resources Connection Inc. missed analysts' expectations by a penny per share. The professional services firm said last week that it earned 12 cents per share, compared to the 13 cents Wall Street was looking for. The company said its continued investment in growth initiatives continues to put pressure on earnings. The company reported earnings for its fiscal third quarter, the three months ending Feb. 28. Total revenues were somewhat higher, but net income was flat when compared to the same quarter of 2002.

Was I reading correctly the article about Fairview Park ("City hustling to develop plan for Fairview Park," Feb. 17) once again being victimized by the Costa Mesa park planners? What is there about the word "no" that these impostors don't understand? The N or the O? [Costa Mesa parks Supt. Dave] Alkema is a double talker. He says he intends to make the park natural and then calls "weeds" all the beautiful, natural wildflowers planted by God. We, some homeowners around the park, just happen to like the way God has planned the park.

Sex offenders would be banned from entering parks under a new ordinance to be considered at Tuesday's Costa Mesa City Council meeting. Council members will vote on the ordinance, which follows the countywide law passed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors last April. If approved, registered sex offenders could not enter city-owned parks and sports facilities without written permission from the Orange County Sheriff's Department, according to a city staff report.

Alicia Robinson Moving Newport Beach City Hall to another location, outsourcing city services and remodeling the building were among the suggestions pitched by residents at recent public meetings on what to do with City Hall. On Tuesday, it will be up to the City Council to decide which, if any, of three overhaul plans to pursue. The plans were presented by consulting firm Griffin Structures to more than 200 people at four public meetings. At the meetings, costs to add to or redo City Hall ranged from $19.1 million for mostly new buildings to $23.6 million to keep several of the existing structures.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT BEACH -- City leaders, viewing a planned expansion of the Balboa Inn as the centerpiece in the revitalization of the village, are confident about the project's chances when it goes to the California Coastal Commission on Tuesday. The $1.5-million project, approved by the City Council almost exactly a year ago, would go hand-in-hand with the city's $8.8-million revamp of the area's streets and parking, and the $4-million restoration of Balboa Theater.

The Costa Mesa Technology Library is set to re-open in its new location on the northwest corner of Fairview Road and Wilson Street, next to the Subway sandwich shop, on April 30. The "Open House" will be from 1 to 4 p.m., complete with prizes. Check it out! Civic Center Park sign I read Jeffrey Harlan's column "Discovering the joy of books" in the Daily Pilot on Sunday. Whoopee! I thought. We need more of this. I have to say that I agreed with what he said, that the "new library" sign in Civic Center Park is bedraggled and faded.

NEWPORT BEACH — Drivers who pass West Coast Highway and Dover Drive may notice tall wooden posts with strings attached. For the property's neighbors, they might bring noise and oversized buildings, but for the developer and many motorists, they signal the turnaround of a long-neglected strip. Mariner's Pointe, a proposed luxury shopping and dining center with a three-story parking garage, is the pet project of former Mayor and retail developer Tod Ridgeway. He recently submitted plans to the city and is now working through the approvals process.

I've always rooted for Triangle Square in Costa Mesa, which over the years has been similar to rooting for the Los Angeles Clippers. So much potential, so little to show for it. Since it opened in 1992 as the centerpiece of the city's downtown redevelopment, the shopping center has been as successful as a liquor salesman at a Mormon conference. Even superstar tenants such as Niketown, Virgin Megastore, The Gap, Ralph's, Barnes and Noble, Johnny Rockets, Humphrey Yogart and La Salsa couldn't make a go of it at Triangle Square.

The defense attorney for a Costa Mesa man and an associate from Mira Loma, whose trial for allegedly shooting and kidnapping a man for ransom ended in a mistrial last month, is slated to meet Monday with a federal judge and prosecutors. Vagan Adzhemyan, of Costa Mesa, and Galvin Shaun Gibson, of Mira Loma, were tried last month for allegedly taking part in the July abduction of a Russian man in a Los Angeles County parking garage. The jury was hung, and the judge declared a mistrial, officials from the U.S. attorney’s office said.

A Costa Mesa man and two others shot and stunned a Van Nuys man before blindfolding him and whisking him away in a van to hold him for ransom, federal prosecutors said Friday. Vagan Adzhemyan, 41, of Costa Mesa, Suren Garibyan, 32, of North Hollywood and Galvin Shaun Gibson, 30, of Mira Loma could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted of federal conspiracy and kidnapping charges listed in a grand jury indictment released Thursday. Prosecutors said Adzhemyan and his cohorts kidnapped the man July 29 after shooting him in the chest and using a Taser gun to overpower him in his apartment complex parking garage.

Passenger convenience and cost concerns have caused John Wayne Airport officials to tinker with the construction schedule for $437 million in airport improvements. A new parking structure that would have been built first under the old plans will now be built later, after the new six-gate passenger terminal, airport spokeswoman Jenny Wedge said. The terminal should be completed in 2010 rather than two years later, and the parking garage will now be done in 2012. An existing parking structure will be demolished to make way for the new terminal, so street-level parking will be offered to replace it. The airport will have more parking overall once the expansion project is complete.

As the Newport Beach City Council listened to debate on the proposed expansion of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church Thursday night, it seemed that everyone in the audience had already made up their minds. On one side of City Council chambers, the church's supporters wore stickers reading "Yes." On the other side, the church's neighbors wore buttons that said "No." At press time, the council had listened to pleas from both sides and several hours of public testimony, but it had not yet voted on the project.
